| ||After the failure of the harder rock single "Let It Rain" to make the Top 40, UFO came out with an absolute diamond of a rock ballad. This seemed like a good choice for a single, yet it fared even worse than its predecessor. As with earlier UFO singles "Young Blood" and "Lonely Heart", this one also suffered from being an edited version which spoilt the continuity of the song. I dare say that was what thwarted its chances of becoming a hit.|
"Back Into My Life" also has the sort of sound one would expect to find in the US charts in the eighties, but it did nothing there either. It is comparable with US rock ballads of the eighties like Foreigner's transatlantic smash hit "I Want To Know What Love Is". Being over four and a half minutes long didn't impede that single's success, so why didn't they release the full-length version of this particular UFO song on a seven-incher? Another unsolved mystery in the history of rock music.
